Re: Climate Change - Latest

Strange 'phone calls!

I occasionally get brief calls from obscure and far away places on my mobile. I've had them from Tobago, Vietnam, Cameroon, and Turks and Caicos.

The phone just gives a couple of rings, before...

Re: Staffa, Lunga and wide angle Puffins.

It is!

I camped for a few days on Staffa some years ago. I wanted to experience Fingall's cave on my own, without all the tourists. It's an amazing place, but I found that the footing was quite...

Photobox!

I wanted a few decent prints, small framed prints and a mug. I went to Photobox, which I've seen recommended.

Re: Olympus 8mm fisheye 3.5 4/3

As it's of very short focal length, I would think that anything over 250mm would be in focus, especially with an aperture of (say) f8.

Re: Best 25mm choice
